A different sort o' week

An unusual "feel" has surrounded my week. Some contributing factors:

My heart-wrenching and head-scratching salamander incident. (It is very sad. Perhaps too sad to share.)

The awesomely frightening movie I saw with a very good friend, which has caused me to avoid using the restroom in the middle of the night (too dark and scary!) therefore causing me to wake up in the morning with an aching bladder.

I got out of the house! Sans children! And it didn't involve work!

The abrupt change in the weather.

The wind, oh my goodness, THE WIND!

Daylight is now gone by 6:00 pm.

Elijah hasn't coughed much.

Today was my last day of work for the week. EEEeeeeeeeee!!!

My plans for tomorrow are out of the norm and sooo unbelievably exciting!

I wore non-maternity pants to work for the first time since November 2009.

I drank a cup of Nighty-Night tea every night before bed. That means I consumed more tea this week than during the rest of my entire life.

Coincidentally, I slept very hard every night this week. "Pip" and "sleeping hard" are not words that often mingle with each other.

And of course, the week leading up to Halloween always allows for some uniqueness. Costumes, parties (we are bringing Elijah to one tonight!) and a more than usual amount of treats.

Did I mention that I'm excited about tomorrow?
